We pray that these Catholic resources help in your discernment for voting responsibly in the 2016 elections. The video below from Cardinal Wuerl is particularly inspiring, well worth the 45 minutes of viewing.
Give the gift of Life and give Blood! only takes 30-45 min to give blood. And you can sign up while you’re there giving blood to be a Potential Bone Marrow Donor: easy as swabbing your cheek and filling out a few forms.
Either sign up to make a reservation for yourself to give blood or walk in! Ascension does this 4 times a year and we have one of the BEST records!!!(Reserve an appointment to give!
Ignition is a half day conference to equip young worship leaders and those interested in learning the craft of leading others in musical prayer with skills, and fellowship in order to better serve our parishes and community by offering training sessions on:

Thrive! by Dr. Laurie Heap introduces parents to new information needed for your kids to foster well-being and healthy relationships. Through this parenting workshop you will be equipped with new skills based on research that will help your children:
Have better health (few sick days due to infectious illness)
Relate better to peers (even in cases of teasing in the middle school years)
Better understand people and have more empathy
Foster better friendships
Perform better academically
The information offered on well-being is also connected to our Catholic faith’s doctrine, the sacraments, and morality. By showing concrete connections between thriving and the faith, children are better able to evangelize within secular culture and make spiritual growth and development an intrinsic, rather than extrinsic goal.
Due to the length of time, childcare will not be provided. Please feel free to bring infants. Nursing accommodations will be available. Contact Ray Martin with questions at the Parish Office or firstname.lastname@example.org.
